Instagram is a photo and video-sharing social networking service. The owner of Instagram is Facebook. You can create an account on Instagram, edit & share pictures, videos and messages with friends & family.
The latest updates on Android and iOS will bring in system-wide dark theme or ‘dark mode.’ The other tech giants like Google and Apple have already updated most of their apps. While the third-party app developers are still trying to catch up with rest. Facebook is all set to adopt the new change starting off with the photo-sharing app.
The latest Instagram alpha update adds a new ‘AMOLED’ dark theme is reported according to XDA. Yes, not only a simple dark theme but also one that features a black background. This will make it better than just having dark grey elements. Until now we have not tried the update, but the XDA report suggests that it is not perfectly dark in all parts, but it does theme the majority of the UI elements.
Facebook has recently added the Dark Mode feature to its Messenger app. The company is reportedly testing it on the main app as well. Not to mention that we are also waiting eagerly for the feature to hit WhatsApp.
If you want to try out the new dark theme, you can download the app from this link to update to the latest version of the app.
Just make sure you have a smartphone that comes with built-in dark mode as it currently follows the system-wide toggle. To run the app you will need devices running on Android 10, any Samsung device with One UI or some of the OnePlus devices. Even the latest MIUI 10 based phones that bring in built-in system-wide dark mode will support the update.
